Four Tenths Of A Second!

What is it about So Cal teams and the last minute, come from behind, miracle shot?



Update: Read ESPN's Page 2 column: "Livin la vida Lakers."

I was in a room full of Spurs fans (well, really just one). It was terrifyingly silent, mere moments after the screams of joy.

No kidding! What a dramatic game.

Tried to email you earlier, but your email address apparently isn't working. I've blogged about some "beneath the surface" circumstances that surround Nicholas Berg's death, and I think you'd be interested.

Also, been blogging up a storm, and I'm proud of my posts, if you want to scroll. I love to write. I'm sort of compelled to write. Blogging has improved my (amateur) writing so much!

Congrats on the Laker game!

While the last minute was exciting, everyone seems to be ignoring the fact that the game, as a whole, was LOUSY. Both teams were inept on offense, and the Lakers were horrible the last quarter and a half. Shaq looked asleep, Malone disappeared after the first quarter, Kobe was sucking air--outside the last 30 seconds, the game was terrible. Neither team deserved to win.

As a Spurs fan I must admit that it took at least an hour for me to get my head to stop spinning.

Screw the Lakers. Los Angeles is the devil's playground and they represent Satan as far as I'm concerned. Go Spurs, go!

well, i'm not a fan of either team, but it sure seemed obvious that the catch and shoot took longer than .4. san antonio's gripe is legit, but human error is part of the game. gotta live with it. regardless, hell of shot by fisher. in fact, hell of shot by kobe, then duncan, then fisher. crappy game but great finish.

The clock may have started late, but on the previous play, it stopped late. Jackson asked for more time, but didn't get it. So it all evened out, imho.

The only part of the game I was able to watch? The last second. My lord it was worth it. Just jumped right off the couch and was yelling my head off.
